  • Like a lot

    By Bankerchick01
    I like that you tend to be fair in your reporting.
  • Quick news

    By Bird dreamer
    Each day I can quickly get an update to things that happened. As I scan the titles if I see something that catches my attention, I can open the story to read further. I usually open USA TODAY first to get my day started! However I have notifications turned off in settings and I get a notification that is blank!! Why? Annoying.
  • Deceiving articles

    By TDC0430
    A lot of articles are nothing but videos of paid advertising nothing about the article clicked.
  • Opinionated drivel

    By Hawkeye JM
    If your ‘columnists’ write a negative article on a subject, call it what it is - “My Opinion”. Both Christine Brennan and Brendan Rogers wrote recent negative Olympic articles under the guise of Columnist that were incredibly negative. Time to clean house if you want to keep readers.
  • Too many videos

    By OrchardPL
    I prefer to read my news. Rarely do I click a video because of commercial preceding. I do enjoy the crossword.

    Can’t get keyboard to do crossword
  • Annoying aspects

    By Nomnom691...
    Used to love this app, but it has developed so many annoying aspects... you have to make it stop (1) auto-playing videos and (2) most annoying of all, having it so that it clicks through on links and ads in articles, even when reader is just scrolling.
  • Latest App Update

    By Gator in Swamp
    The latest update is bad, it keeps crashing. This morning it has crashed 4 times in the last 30 minutes, it just shuts down. It is becoming very frustrating while trying to read the news
  • Slanted and Unreliable

    By MisterMikeMidwest
    The app works fine, but the content has sunk too unprecedented lows. USA Today was once unbiased, albeit bland, but in a rush to appeal to the far left has abandoned any sense of balance in its reporting. Sad.
  • Performance slipping

    By onerater
    While reading an article the page skips around, you loose your place and have to scroll around to find your place. Photos don’t load and don’t swipe like they used to. The mechanics, user interface has gone terribly down hill. USA Today is in bed with “ News articles” are often just ads for Amazon products. USA needs to get back to old fashioned reporting and improve the mechanics of their web site.
